DJI Matrice 200 Professional Quadcopter
Built with enterprise users in mind, DJI‘s Matrice 200 Professional Quadcopter leverages the Inspire 2 platform but is ruggedized and built to withstand harsh conditions. The body of the drone itself is rated at IP43 for weather and water resistance in the field. The Dual battery bays can house two included TB50 or separately available TB55 batteries to power.
The advanced electronics found in the Matrice 200 include computer-vision intelligent flight modes using DJI’s FlightAutonomy system. With this system objects in front of, below, and above the drone can be detected and avoided automatically. This quadcopter is made from quality materials and is also durable. Moreover, one can use the onboard 2-axis stabilized FPV camera, the pilot can navigate the Matrice 200 without being limited to a mounted gimbal camera’s field-of-view.
For image capture and analysis, the Matrice 200 is compatible with DJI’s separately available Zenmuse gimbal cameras, including the X4S, X5S, and Z30 — with each model offering different FOV options, as well as the XT, which offers thermal imaging.
Intelligent Flight Features
The M200 Series drones utilize computer vision for intelligent flight modes to help more efficiently collect data. These features are available for multiple DJI sensors, enabling advanced shots such as zooming while tracking an object:
- Spotlight – Lock the camera onto a subject during flight while the aircraft moves freely
- Point of Interest – Circle around an object for a smooth orbit
- Tripod – Fine-tune position and angle for position framing and safe navigation in narrow environments
- ActiveTrack – Follow a person or object while keeping it in frame
App and Software Support
The DJI Pilot app is compatible with DJI FlightHub, a web-based software package allowing teams to share real-time data with offsite parties over the Internet. This includes remote emergency control rooms being able to keep track of first-response teams or asset-management centres inspecting global infrastructure networks.
In an easy-to-use control centre, DJI FlightHub lets users plan flights with multiple drones and keep track of each aircraft’s status. An offsite control room can simultaneously monitor live feeds and remotely control gimbal and camera. The software enables managers to plan flights in advance using waypoints and dynamic geofencing.
